On the shores of Lake Michigan, Rebecca Meyer seeks escape. Guilt-ridden over her little sister’s death, she sets her heart on India, a symbol of peace.

Across the ocean in South India, Sagai Raj leaves his tranquil hill station home and impoverished family to answer a higher calling. Pushing through diverse cultural and religious milieus, he labors toward his goals, while wrong turns and bad choices block Rebecca from hers.

Traveling similar paths and bridged across oceans through a priest, the two desire peace and their divine destiny. But vows and blind obedience at all costs must be weighed…and buried memories, unearthed.

Crooked Lines, a beautifully crafted debut novel, threads the lives of two determined souls from different continents and cultures. Compelling characters struggle with spirituality through despair and deceptions in search of truth.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

The author’s fast-paced but musical prose drew me along into these lives that I became so quickly invested in. I can’t wait to read the sequel to this novel. This was the kind of love story I want to read. Realistic, gritty in places, yet full of poetic truth.

*******

I read a lot of Christian genre books. This one was one of the best! I thought it was interesting the way Ms. Michael interacted some of the different religions in different situations. All in all, a very well written book. I recommend it enthusiastically!

*******

It only took me a few pages to get hooked on this book. I instantly connected with the characters. Not realizing this was a very spiritual book when I started, I believe it was just what I needed at just the right time.

*******

Love, Love, Loved this book! Between college and work I read this whole book in a total of about three or four days. I could not put it down and when I had to put it down to do something productive around the house it called my name to be picked up again.

*******

Wow! I can honestly say, I don’t think I’ve ever read a book quite like this…Her writing is unique and I can’t put my finger on it exactly what it is that means so much to me in regards to her writing. It was an amazing read!!!! I can’t wait to read more of Holly Michael’s work.
